Marie E. Rognes is Chief Research Scientist at Simula Research Laboratory, Oslo, Norway. Her research focuses on numerical methods for partial differential equations, software for scientific computing, with applications in biomechanics and neuroscience. She is an ERC Starting Grantee (2017-2022), winner of the 2015 Wilkinson Prize for Numerical Software, winner of the 2018 Royal Norwegian Society of Sciences and Letters Prize for Young Researchers within the Natural Sciences, core member of the FEniCS Project and Dolfin-adjoint teams, and Founding Member of the Young Academy of Norway (2015-2019).
Rognes received her Master (2005) and Ph.D. (2009) degrees in applied mathematics at the Centre for Mathematics for Applications, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Science, University of Oslo. At Simula, she has led the Biomedical Computing Department (2012-2016), the Robust Solvers project at the CoE Center for Biomedical Computing (2012-2017), the AUQ-PDE project (2015-2017), the FRIPRO Young Research Talent project Waterscape (2016-2020), and the ERC Starting Grant project Waterscales (2016-2022). In 2015-2016, Rognes was an Adjunct Associate Professor in Solid Mechanics at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Oslo. In May 2017, Rognes gave a talk at TEDxOslo titled “Mathematics that cures us” on the topic of mathematical modelling in medicine.
